I guess if you are a senator, movie star or race car driver the same laws don't apply to you. But if you are the common ordinary man and have the same charges filed against you by the IRS you will do time in a federal prison, i.e., Earl Wolfe. They allege that he owes $225,000.00 - no where near the millions this guys owes. Why is it the law doesn't judge everyone equally. I thought that was what are legal system was all about - what a joke!
